FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, NY December 4, 2012
“The Lady Avengers of the Echelon! A crew of super woman fans making earth a way better place in honor of their fave pop-rock martians.” – MTV ACT
“Faye Kaloudi is the Freericer extraordinaire who co-runs the Freerice group, Mars Army Against Hunger, which has recruited over 400 people to take up arms against hunger!” – FREERICE
In honor of MARS300/CHURCH OF MARS – three historic concerts held by Thirty Seconds to Mars on Dec 2011 – ALL ECHELON HELP is launching a Global Assault on Hunger on Friday, December 7 and Saturday, December 8, 2012.
The Mission is simple we asked the Echelon – whatthe band’s fans are known as – from around the world to create teams of people to either donate their time and or food to their local food pantry, soup kitchen or food bank. As food prices soar and water becomes more scares the amount of people suffering from hunger is astounding, which is why we asked the ECHELON Family to get involved!
“According to the United Nations World Food Progamme, hunger is the world’s No. 1 Health Risk, more people die of hunger every year than those with AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis combined. With such a sense of solidarity between the Echelon, I knew they would be eager to help combat this.” stated Anaëlle Salem founder All Echelon Help. “Our goal is to help people in need and raise awareness about World Hunger.”
15 countries and 2 US States are participating in All Echelon Help’s: Echelon Global Assault on Hunger.
